Vegan, FODMAP friendly buffalo wings

Stuck for FODMAP friendly party food ideas? Impress your guests with these fiery, hard-to-resist wings! With LEON’s original recipe in mind, I use broccoli as an equally hearty, moreish and deliciously vegan substitute to meat. They make for a perfect accompaniment to any summer party.

Mustard and balsamic vinegar kale with toasted seeds

I’ll preface this caption with a shout out to one of my closest friends who introduced me to the wonders of kale. Thank you.

Eaten raw, I prepare the kale by massaging a balsamic vinegar dressing mixed with garlic infused oil and classic English mustard. Taking inspiration from Ottolenghi’s legendary cookbook, Simple, I toast pumpkin seeds and flax seeds in a maple syrup and olive oil dressing that gives the kale additional crunch and texture. 

Crunchy, nutty gluten free granola

Most shop-bought gluten free granola is grossly expensive. I still envy those who can eat the ordinary kind for almost half the price. But it amazes me just how simple it is to make. Get more bang for your buck and try it yourselves!

Bowls of goodness: Courgette and chilli pasta

One of the wonderful things about this dish is that it’s cost-effective, incredibly quick and easy to make and can also be made vegan if you choose to leave out the grated parmesan cheese at the end. I made this for the first time when I was a student in my final year (all those months ago) and was in desperate need of a nutritious and delicious recipe, without being time-consuming – and I’ve been making it and passing it onto friends ever since.
